Suspect arrested in sexual assault of elderly woman

Allegations of sexual assault are serious and can cause lasting damage to the reputation, personal and professional life of the accused, even in the event that the charges are dropped. Sex crimes are often prosecuted intensely, and anyone facing such accusations should make sure to fully understand the charges and their possible effects.

Broward County robbery suspects charged with murder

Being accused of a crime is a serious matter in Fort Lauderdale, especially when the allegations result in a felony charge. A judge can deny bail to any person charged with a felony, resulting in jail time even before the case goes to trial. Two robbery suspects from Lauderhill in Broward County recently found this out the hard way after being denied bail on a charge of felony murder.

Domestic violence allegations turn saucy in Florida

The definition of domestic abuse or violence under Florida law is very broad and includes a large variety of criminal offenses. Allegations and charges of domestic violence can change an individual's personal and professional life drastically by damaging not only a person's reputation but by also limiting employment opportunities if he or she is convicted on the charges.

Coral Springs man on trial for solicitation to commit murder

Often, the more charges brought against a defendant, the more complex the criminal case becomes. When a person is accused of solicitation to commit murder against witnesses to the original case that case can get even more complicated very quickly. If you have been charged with a criminal offense, it is imperative to seek a competent criminal defense attorney to effectively address the charges, especially if any new allegations surface. This is even more essential when the main witness is described as a "professional snitch" by the prosecution.

Palm Beach County jury acquits man of attempted murder charges

Palm Beach County prosecutors attempted to convict a 34-year-old man on arson and first-degree attempted murder charges following an incident in August of last year. His former girlfriend, aged 45, claimed he beat her and barricaded her inside a burning apartment near Lake Worth on Coconut Road. In court, the jury was not convinced of these felony charges, however. During closing remarks, the defense noted that there was a lack of evidence to prove the girlfriend's claims.
